    Why do you need a metaphor there at all? It seems fine without it.

    You cant come up with anything by yourself?!

    Not sure if there is a metaphor that fits well in this spot, how about

    "Upon my wife's dressing table, among her belongings, I noticed a letter. Her gaze darted from the letter to my eyes and, at that moment, I knew something was different... or and she seemed uncharacteristically...

    Maybe rubbish, ive never done creative writing but im bored so there's a couple of suggestions! I cant see a great metaphor for that particular place, rephrase it if you desperately want a metaphor.
